Question about Garden
The engine assembly has vibrated off from the shaft that turns the tiller's tines. I need a schematic and parts list with cost. Please help.
I went to MTD web site and they had all the manuals for all there products. You will need a model and serial number to get them. Thank you for responding back to me.
I got the manual for the tiller and the engine.

SOURCE: tines wont turn
Without really knowing what is broken it will be tough to give a firm idea of the cost. However, you can head over to www.partstree.com. They have a great detailed parts break down and costs associated with it. Looked up your part numer and can find at this link: http://www.partstree.com/parts/?lc=mtd&mn=210-031-000+%281990%29

I have the same issue with one I am working on. It appears the keys in the drive shaft are not rotating far enough out on the drive gear side to fully engage in the gear. I have studied and studied this and so far I have been unable to determine why. If I find out I will let you know. I am also trying to figure out what is supposed to pull these keys out of the till engagement gear.

I had similar problem recently with 2007 Huskee MTD series 410. The shift assembly bent and couldn't move the clutch collar all the way over on the drive shaft.

As much as I hate to admit it, I have one in my shop I have been working on for a friend. Like ehertig_cwc shows in his picture of the shifter forks they can and do bend. The part i hate to admit is I have been unable to fix this one. Yeah, the shifter forks were bent and the pins worn to nothing. I repaired that and put it back together and I'm sure some of you how long that takes. It worked for about 20 minutes and I lost all shift detents. I have studied and studied that drive shaft shifter section and for the life of me I have been unable to determine what keeps the dang detent ball from rotating and getting into the shafts keyed section. As soon as it does, you loose or soon will loose shifting as the clutch just floats around in there. I have two MTD service manuals and neither on shows this drive shaft apart or how to assemble it. I think it is magic how it works. Other than this part I find the gearbox pretty easy to work on.
